A Little Mislead........
When I was looking for a place to rent on VRBO, I was looking for a beachfront home or something with a view of the beach in Eastsound. When I came to this listing, the first picture I saw was of beautiful Crescent Beach. Then I read the description of the property and part of it said - "The private lot across the lane offers beautiful views of the bay, Madrona Point, Crescent Beach, The Orcas Island Community Church steeple, plus lots of waterfowl. Enjoy these views from The Hammock, or The Chairs." This lead me to believe that there was a view of the beach from the front deck where "The Chairs" are. This is not the case. The lot across the street is fully grown over with tall trees and vegetation completely blocking whatever view the house might have had many, many years ago. There's a very small view from the upstairs bedroom through the tall trees. This was very disappointing to me and my family as we were expecting to have a view of the water. That being said, the other reviews for this house are very accurate. The owners were a pleasure to work with, the house is very cute, Eastsound is a terrific little town with plenty of restaurants to choose from, Moran State Park is a great place to take a hike around Mountain Lake, and it's a beautiful part of the island. If you're looking for a house with a view of the beach, this isn't the one, but if you're looking for a nice house with all the amenities of home in a quaint setting, and a short walk to town, this is the place for you.
